We will depart from Split harbor at 13:00, and if you’re running late, you can join us in Makarska. We’ll be cruising southwards along the picturesque Dalmatian coast while serving lunch on board. We’ll stop for an afternoon swim in one of the beautiful secluded bays.
In the evening, you can enjoy the town of Makarska. Take a stroll along the waterfront, where you can find a wide promenade, a pathway to a lighthouse, and some trendy bars. Additionally, the main square is home to an impressive church and other significant monuments. We will spend the night in the port.
We’ll start our day early and head toward the beautiful island of Mljet. On our way, we’ll stop for a refreshing swim in Pelješac. Once we reach Mljet, we’ll visit its breathtaking national park. There’s an entrance fee to be paid on the spot, but it’s worth it.
Inside the park, you can see the peaceful seawater lakes, the tiny St. Mary’s Island in the middle of the lake, and the church and monastery. In the afternoon, you can explore these stunning lakes on foot or hire a bike. We will spend the night in the port of Polača or Pomena.
After enjoying breakfast, we’ll head toward Dubrovnik, the most well-known town in Croatia and often the highlight of our cruise. As we travel, take in the stunning coastline. Upon arrival, you can explore on your own or join a guided city tour (included in Premium Superior and Premium packages).
Afterward, take the opportunity to ride a cable car up to Srđ mountain with spectacular views of the Old Town. Don’t miss the chance to visit Stradun, both a street and a square in the old town. You can also walk at least a portion of the 1,940-meter-long city walls that have protected Dubrovnik during earthquakes and attacks. We will check out of Dubrovnik after lunch, no later than 14:00.

If privacy, luxury, and comfort are essential to you, you may want to consider selecting a vessel from the Premium Superior or Premium categories. Alternatively, the Traditional Ensuite vessels would be more suitable for younger passengers, including friends or special interest groups like alpinists or bikers, who are comfortable sharing small spaces and bathrooms for an extended period. However, it’s important to note that Traditional Ensuite vessels typically do not have air-conditioned cabins, and most have bunk beds.
The number of passengers per vessel can range from 20 to 40 individuals, depending on the size of the boat.
The electrical outlets found in the cabins of our vessels in Croatia are standard Type F sockets, which have two pins and are grounded. These outlets are compatible with plug types C, E, and F and can deliver a power output of 16 A and 220 V. Some newer vessels may also feature USB sockets.
All vessels are equipped with life-saving boats and life jackets found in designated wardrobes on the deck, in the salon, or under beds in the cabins. If you cannot swim, you need to inform the crew and captain. Additionally, passengers must be mindful of the following safety guidelines while on board:
The primary currency accepted on the ship and throughout Croatia is the Euro, but it is advisable to exchange money at a bank or withdraw cash from an ATM where possible. The local currency is required for drinks onboard and all additional services such as transfers, excursions, and accommodation. Premium and Premium Superior vessels offer credit card payment options.
While ATMs linked to international networks are available in major towns and islands like Opatija, Dubrovnik, and Split, smaller ones may not have ATM facilities. Most tourist areas accept major credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard, but it is recommended to have some cash on hand if you plan to travel off the beaten path.
Tips are not included in the tour price, and they are discretionary. They are usually given to show appreciation for good service and satisfaction with the crew, guide, and overall tour. If you choose to tip, it is recommended to use your own currency or Euro, and the crew gratuities are equally distributed among all members.
Cabins on Premium Superior and Premium ships come with either twin or double beds, and some can accommodate up to three people with an additional bed above or beside the double bed. However, it’s important to note that bed availability is limited, and we cannot guarantee a specific type. We do, however, aim to assign cabins based on guest preferences and requests, so please let us know your bed preference when booking, and we will try our best to accommodate it.
Cabins on Premium and Premium Superior ships come with either twin or double beds, with twin beds measuring approximately 90/100 cm x 190/200 cm and double beds measuring around 150/160 cm x 190/200 cm. Traditional Ensuite cabins often have bunk beds, but twin or double beds may also be available on some vessels. Double beds in these cabins are typically 130/140 cm x 190/200 cm, while bunk beds are about 80/90 cm x 190/200 cm in size.
The ship’s cabins are distributed on two levels, the deck and the lower deck. The on-deck ones can be found either on the main or upper deck, while below-deck cabins are in the ship’s hull. Rooms on the deck provide the advantage of direct access to the sea and better ventilation, while cabins below the deck may be quieter since only passengers who booked lower deck cabins pass by. These cabins are also comfortable due to their location at sea level, which keeps them naturally cool, and the below-deck hallways are typically air-conditioned, affecting the temperature. Lower-deck cabins usually come with small portholes.
Lower deck cabins are located in the boat’s hull and usually have a small porthole, but Croatian law and vessel regulations require them to be closed while sailing to prevent water from entering the cabin. The portholes can be opened when the boat is docked. However, on newer ships like those in the Premium Superior and Premium categories, which have air-conditioned cabins and steel hulls, the portholes are fixed and cannot be opened.
Air conditioning is available in Premium Superior and Premium cabins, except for times with limited access to electricity. Traditional Ensuite cabins do not have air conditioning, but lower deck hallways and salons typically do. Air conditioning is only operational when the motor or generator is running, or the vessel is connected to shore power while docked at the harbor. In certain smaller fishing harbors without electricity, air conditioning may be turned off to maintain a tranquil environment.
If you plan to sleep on the deck and enjoy the stars, it is suggested to bring a sleeping bag, as removing mattresses, pillows, and sheets from cabins is prohibited.
The boats have limited capacities for electricity and water. While there is a generator on board for generating electricity, it is not operational during the night or while the boat is in a quiet bay to prevent noise pollution. The water tanks on board have sufficient capacity to match the number of cabins and beds, and they are always filled with enough water, provided that everyone uses water conservatively. Moreover, the vessels are fitted with central heating systems that offer hot water.
It is not allowed to bring and consume your own drinks on the ship. However, you can buy various alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from the vessel’s salon, which functions as a restaurant, living room, and bar. In case the drink of your preference is not available at the moment, kindly notify the crew, and they will try their best to procure it for you at the next stop.
The onboard bar accepts payments for drinks made in Euros. At the end of the trip, guests will receive a report showing the total amount spent on drinks, which can be settled during the checkout process. For guests on deluxe and premium vessels, credit card payments are also accepted.
